After spending a summer next door in Salem Township, the Delmont Farmer’s Market is coming back to the borough in 2019.

Vendor Amanda Bank told borough council members she and market patron Alice Heasley plan to organize the market in its original location, the Rose Wigfield Parklet on Greensburg Street.

The 2018 market was hosted by the nearby Fairview Park Association, after Delmont Mayor Alyce Urban said she would not be able to coordinate all of the issues related to running the event without additional volunteers.

“I have been a vendor there the past two years,” said Bank, a LuLaRoe retailer who sells clothing for women and children. “The organizer from last year moved, and was no longer able to be the coordinator.”

Bank and Heasley decided it was a task they could manage.

“There is a one-time $25 registration fee that we’ll use for advertising — no other fees will apply,” Bank said. “We’re hoping to get some of the original vendors back from the days it was in the parklet.”

A Facebook page for the market has been created, and Bank said a registration form for vendors will be uploaded in the near future.

The market will open June 1 and run on Saturdays through Sept. 7, with the exception of July 6 and Aug. 31.

Vendors must provide proof of insurance.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
